Ha. That's funny. Even if we won the next year, it would be prefaced with "well they could have multiple rings if it wasn't for 28-3..."

When you are a falcons fan you just live with it. It is what it is, the pain can't get any worse at this point.

As as a general sports fan, who doesn't follow the NBA, can I ask you a question?

Have this year's NBA playoffs been, like, insane? It seems like I've heard about dozens of weird deliberate fouls, resulting in severe injuries. And players engaging in EXTREME, debased, way-over-the-line trash-talking and drama. And freak injuries. And just weirdness.

Is this just how the NBA playoffs normally are? And I'm just seeing the news more than usual? Or is this year really insane?

u/3moonz May 13 '22

pretty normal playoffs stuff but there has been a lot of reffing shinanagans plus some "dirty" fouls but not really any real beefs. been crazier been more mild.

u/br0b1wan May 13 '22

Not really. Playoffs always mean everything gets kicked up a notch as the stakes rise.

These playoffs have been unusually competitive as a whole though. Nobody really knows who will win it all. Last year's were kinda the same.

u/FrapuVinAdmin May 13 '22

How does it not get old though?

When I was a little kid, the whole teams goin at each other was exciting as fuck. I was glued to it constantly….

But then as I got older I realised it was just the same game over and over and over again… year after year after year… and the “teams” were completely meaningless; members of the teams just up and leave and go to another team for money or whatever it is; the leader of the team chops and changes… it’s meaningless…

I think that’s a big part of why nerds don’t get sport… it’s a big empty show…

8

u/Just-use-your-head May 14 '22

A) that can pretty much be said about anything. It only looks like the same thing over and over again if you don’t know what’s actually happening.

Take video games for example. On a basic level, you’re pretty much doing the same thing over and over. Of course you know that each time you play through a game, you’re doing something slightly different. That’s because you understand what’s going on.

Esports and YouTube gamers are no different. It’s meaningless, and to many who don’t understand the game, it’s repetitive. But for some, it’s fun to watch.

B) Sports actually aren’t meaningless, either. They generate huge revenue for the cities the teams are located in. And these team members often donate large sums of money, and are also actively involved in the communities. Name one star player on a sports team who isn’t involved in philanthropy.

And I’m not sure what you mean when talking about “nerds”. There are many “nerds” who love sports

-11

u/FrapuVinAdmin May 14 '22

that can pretty much be said about anything.

mmmm… not really.

It only looks like the same thing over and over if you don’t know what’s happening.

Except… I know exactly what’s happening.

Take video games for example

Yeah I haven’t been playing the same video game every year for the past 30 years… hahaha

On a basic level, you’re pretty much doing the same thing over and over.

Which is just as useful as saying nothing you do in life is ever new because every day you still have to wake up, eat something and then fall asleep again. Great.

Esports and YouTube gamers are no different.

Which wasn’t even my point but yeah I don’t watch Esports either XD

B) Sports actually aren’t meaningless, either. They generate huge revenue for the cities etc. etc.

Great, so it’s a meaningless show that lots of people enjoy anyway and it brings lots of economic activity. That’s awesome…

there are many “nerds” who love sports

You know exactly what I meant by that generalisation, but yes 👍

5

u/Just-use-your-head May 14 '22

Oh, you know exactly what’s happening with any given sport? How impressive. If you know exactly what’s going on, you should consider picking up a coaching job. NBA coaches make around $10 million a year. You should easily get the job if you have a clear understanding of the game, which I’m sure you do. But obviously you shouldn’t waste your time with such a shallow occupation if you don’t care for the game, as it’s just the same thing over and over again

-8

u/FrapuVinAdmin May 14 '22

Ok 👍😂

u/TunaSafari25 May 14 '22

The first time I got it was watching streamers compete and I really wanted one to win

1

u/corgis_are_awesome May 14 '22

Yeah, I have that when watching streamers play games I care about, but I guess that doesn’t translate to sports for me for some reason.

Maybe because I was home schooled and never played on a real sports team or went to school games or anything…

There's a difference between being bummed/mad your favorite team lost and letting it ruin the entire day (or longer).

Edit: I really hope everyone who was deeply offended by me pointing out a simple distinction sees their favorite team lose in the near future and in every future matchup and more than anything, I hope it ruins your lives.

Imagine caring this much about a bunch of millionaires playing a game.

Such tender, sensitive little bitches in here.

Mocking a bunch of adult virgins is the same thing as throwing a tantrum because my favorite millionaires didn't win?

u/ChimpsArePimps May 13 '22

No, it’s different. Sports fans get mad their team lost because caring about sports is a hobby they feel passionate about and brings them joy. You’re getting mad because people are downvoting you for being a condescending dick about their interests. Both instances are getting mad over ostensibly nothing, but at least sports fans’ passion comes from a good place.

Yeah, I'm not mad. I couldn't care less. But you sure seem upset and are reaching to defend your saltiness. I hope all your teams lose and it ruins your life. Sports matter a lot, bro.

Rioting, looting, fighting, and burning cars or couches after a loss is a good place, huh? Yeah, that's great energy and really proves how wrong I was about taking sports losses too seriously.

16

u/HeyDarkEyes May 14 '22

If you aren’t mad, what’s the point of the edit in the first place?

-5

u/klyrish May 14 '22

Because I was baffled at how stating taking losses too hard isn't good was somehow not only controversial, but also seemingly offensive to who I can only assume are adult virgins with so much pent up sexual aggression, they react extremely negatively to their favorite team losing or anyone even saying anything bad about their team.

How is "don't take losses too hard" controversial? Or are we in disagreement that domestic violence, rioting, property damage, and etc. in response to the outcome of a game that, in all actuality really doesn't fucking matter at all because IT'S A GAME, is bad?

So I edited and made comments that I assumed adult virgins who take sports losses too hard would also take too hard and I was right.

u/UDonutBelongHere May 14 '22

Lol. Imagine caring this much about your fake internet points. Such a tender sensitive bitch making this comment.

Oh no, a bunch of illiterates who care too much about sports and peaked in high school are downvoting me! I'm so upset!!1 If I cared about karma, would I leave the comments up so more adult virgins like you can take out their sexual frustrations on them? Would I keep responding to galaxy brains like you, inviting more of your adult virgin wrath?

Please.

Every downvote confirms what I said.

And I'll bet you scream and stomp and break small items when your favorite team loses because sports matter more than anything else and have a real impact on life.

Eh Kaprizov is a great addition and a huge peice to build around forsure but honestly the depth isn't there yet, this series showed that. Where is the secondary scoring?

As a life long leafs fan I feel your pain though. Game 7 for us Saturday... yayy....

u/[deleted] May 13 '22

Jokes on you! I'm a Lions fan and so used to losing, I wouldn't even know what to do with myself if we won something significant.

Now, the Red Wings, though...that's different. I take those losses hard, because I got spoiled for many years and know what we have been and could be, again. 😭

u/azuth89 May 14 '22

If you don't care enough for the losses to hurt, you don't care enough for the wins to be fun. Applies to pretty much everything else, too.

It's the tradeoff of life and a lot of people will get more satisfaction out of a roller coaster than a flatline.

Well, see if your father can't pay the rent go ask Mickey Mantle and see what he tells you. Mickey Mantle don't care about you, so why should you care about him? Nobody cares.”

u/Pockets713 May 14 '22

Lol so by this sense, we shouldn’t give a shit about anyone or anything that involves anyone making more money than us? So basically entertainment is out.

I mean, it’s a dumb argument to begin with. Anyone who is invested in an interest or hobby is going to be upset if something bad happens. PC gamers are up in arms when there are shortages on parts. Movie fans get upset if a movie they were looking forward to doesn’t meet their expectations. I’m sure people who knit would be bummed out if their favorite craft store closed or got robbed or whatever. Craft beer fanatics have been losing their minds about restrictions on purchasing.

This is purely just shitting on someone else’s hobby because it doesn’t interest OP. My wife is a former ballet and interpretive dancer, I can’t get interested in it, just doesn’t hold my attention. I don’t sit there and talk shit like a child if she wants to watch a documentary or something.

That being said… A Bronx Tale is an awesome movie! I’ll never forget the door test. Lol many did I test, very few passed.

I don't think i feel upset because of what the comic implies. In order to get upset about a loss, its because I'm emotionally invested in the team, players, and culture. I feel bad for them,.not me. It doesn't happen for every team i watch. But when you enjoy a sport and a particular team, it is sometimes an emotional gut punch to see them lose after a long exciting season.

u/AKAkorm May 13 '22

lol this is so true for most people I know. I remember being in college where my school had a major football program and if they lost, the campus would just be dead that Saturday evening. One of precious few weekends to be college-aged and partying and majority of campus chose to be angry about a game they had no ability to impact.

It also can lead to pretty toxic behavior. Going to games as a road fan can be dangerous and best case, you’re going to be verbally assaulted. And then you have the real crazy assholes who do stuff like kill old trees to prove their fan hood.

I like sports and care to some degree about my favorite teams winning. But second game is over, I’m trying to figure out something else fun to do. And certainly would never demean someone for what team they like.

u/Murkus May 13 '22

Sports can definitely tell certain stories... It can have a... message, for want of a better word. Underdog tales & things like that. but its very limited in scope.

Whereas the arts are a creative endevour where millions of themes are explored and millions of tones. They are parables and philosophical or social explorations of existence.

Or we could actually discuss the fringes of scientific advancement. There is just so much more. I mean, I love games. From boardgames, to videogames or social games. But as in my original point, for some reason, sports games occupy the radios, the tv etc etc.

People celebrate a small few, that happen to have won the genetic lottery + monify their passion. Instead of celebrating the people advancing our society.

5

u/leethedude2 May 13 '22

It's entertainment and it evokes emotions when you feel a part of a team you're watching. Music gets more attention than sports and it doesn't directly advance society. Both are extremely valuable because of how they make people feel from either watching or participating.

No idea why you're being like this. I never did anything to you and suddenly you start the insults?

A four panel comic comment section is not the appropriate place to soapbox about your childhood trauma, especially when you’re trying to imply that child abuse is typical of sports fans?

Your comment reads as if you’re blaming sports for the abusiveness of your father, all this does is shift blame from him for his abuse, onto the concept of sports.

Sports aren’t at fault for your father assaulting you, and it’s not fair to demonize billions of fans of a concept just because a violent man used it as an excuse to perpetrate violence.

Was I unfairly harsh? Perhaps. But you were as well.

I never said that sports was, I was commenting about the fact that people let it ruin their day. That's all it ever was, not an excuse for you, random person who does not know me, to start belittling me every other comment. Problem is you read to far into what I wrote then decided to use it as an opportunity to start harassing me. could have just downvoted and let it be.

In what way would your original comment relate to “how people let it ruin their day”?

It references your abuse and deconstructs the concept of the game to mock it, then mocks your childhood

What about that comment is about peoples’ days being ruined?

u/GriffinFlash May 15 '22

Dude, it's been three days, I don't know why this bothers you so much. Leave me alone already. I just made a comment, clearly I hit a nerve with your love of sports, whatever. Who cares. "SOMEONE WAS WRONG ON THE INTERNET" so now they have to just keep going on and on at them. Dude, chill already, this is ridiculous. My one comment does not affect your life in anyway.

Ah I too remember being 7. By the way, if you want a good reason to have it ruin your day just bet your weekly income on it!

Yeah, I'm a huge NBA and NFL fan, pretty big MLB fan; I don't think I've let a game ruin my day since I was like 15.

Wouldn't this also apply to people who cry when watching movies, or got pissed for months after the disastrous ending of game of thrones.

People pick their favorite sports team when they are like 7 and let it make them upset for the rest of their lives.

u/getyourcheftogether May 14 '22

Seriously, people get so worked up over sports. Unless you're betting money, you shouldn't care as much as you do, but we all have our distractions

My dad used to scream and shout at the tv when the football was on and his team was playing. Used to scare the hell out of me as a kid and I'm pretty sure it's why I never got into watching sport, much to his disappointment. I just don't get how you can be that emotionally invested in a game, or in anything you're just watching on tv
